This place has a great location. In the hills , pleasantly free from the noise and grit of Kandy city. A real relief for all senses. The breakfasts are very good and served on a nice terrace. Rooms are fine. Only real complaints were silly food & drink prices (menu prices don't include about 35% service/taxes) and some price gouging...

Theva is a tastefully designed, welcoming hotel with a lovely swimming pool and spacious outside seating area. The stunning views lend itself to be an ideal place to have al fresco dinner or breakfast (which is great as the food is delicious and many come to the hotel solely to dine!) The staff were warm and accommodating to our needs...

We stayed one night at Theva coming down from Dambulla on our way to the train and tea plantations. The view from the terrace is amazing. The food was good and service very friendly. The room was quirky but adequate. The only annoying thing was the window blinds which were too small in both length and width in the corner...

This beautiful hotel build on a hill slope has nice views. We had a nice big room with terrace and nice views of surroundings. Food is excellent and is served on a nice terrace overlooking the area. This hotel is unfit for disabled or elderly people due to the big amount of stairs.

Theva is in such an amazing location, perched on the mountain with incredible views. We had a really wonderful stay. We were only there one night but it was such a lovely night! We had dinner on the terrace under the stars. The food was delicious! Staff was incredibly helpful and they provided a sturdy cot for our baby. We...

Beautiful Residence, with amazing views of Kandy, as you sit having your meals. Good rooms, quite small, but clean & neat. Quite a few stairs, but a great experience! Food was exceptional, especially the vegetarian lasagne!

Wonderful views, sweet staff, immaculately clean, good food. Up a very steep hill which means you're away from the bustle. Pool looks lovely but it's not very user friendly. Altogether a rather uncomfortable and unrelaxing space - the atmosphere is a bit odd, mainly due to bad aesthetics. Don't know what you would do in bad weather as there is...

We (6 pax) stayed at the Theva for 2 nights and found it to be a really delightful boutique hotel with incredible views out over the city and due to its elevated position it was lovely and quiet. All our meals were excellent and very well presented and the staff were very attentive and helpful. The rooms are a little...

Stayed at the Theva Residency for three days early February whilst visiting Kandy. Kandy is a lovely city (Temple of the Tooth, Botanical Gardens, Hindu temples etc) but it is veeery busy. The Theva Residency is perfectly situated on one of the hills overlooking Kandy (5 minutes down the hill to the city). The rooms are large, well appointed (if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A slice of Heaven… Nestled in the Hantana Hills Theva sits overlooking Kandy town. As you drive through the windy roads up the Hantana hills one can see the ethereal glistening of small city lights filling the night sky. An undoubtedly magical entrance to this boutique hotel. The food is divine and prepared with the utmost devotion and attention to detail. The Chef and his team have really been able to bring world-class food to this remote location. ... more   less
